Pair T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings Walnut Slipper Lounge Chairs

About the Item

This elegant tailored lounge chair is one of the most famous designs by TH Robsjohn-Gibbings, and perfectly reflects his understated brand of stripped-down modernism. By reducing a traditional design to its simplest form, devoid of any embellishment beyond perfect proportions and the quality of the materials, Robsjohn-Gibbings created what may be the ideal chair; adult, sophisticated and comfortable in any setting. This pair employs a solid walnut frame and rust red velvet upholstery.
